HTTPS snooping flaw affected thousands of iOS apps

HTTPS snooping flaw affected thousands of iOS apps

One of the reasons that Apple decided early on that every app had to be submitted to be reviewed before going to the App store was so that the company could be sure that the apps would work as promised and not compromise the iPhones and iPads they are installed on. Recently a HTTPS snooping flaw that didn’t come from the apps themselves, but from a third-party library affected thousands of iOS apps.

Apple, LA Schools may soon be in court over iPads

Apple, LA Schools may soon be in court over iPads

In 2013, The Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) started an ambitious plan to get an iPad in the hands of every child in their schools. The $1.3 billion plan was going to bring tech as well as Internet connectivity to schools in the Los Angeles area, but those days are gone. According to a new report, not only is the LAUSD’s Board of Education possibly getting away from iPads in schools, but may be looking to press Apple for a change to the existing agreement as well.

Apple’s Tim Cook is up for auction again

Apple’s Tim Cook is up for auction again

Tim Cook is up for auction, or at least an hour of the Apple CEO's time, along with the opportunity to attend a future keynote for those with suitably deep wallets. The chief executive - who has been increasingly outspoken on equal rights, marriage equality, and other topics in recent months - is again offering a chunk out of his busy day in the name of raising cash for charity, and with bids already well in excess of the estimate and still twenty days to run, it could even end up eclipsing Cook's previous blockbuster sale of his company.

Goldman forecasts Apple Watch domination

Goldman forecasts Apple Watch domination

Goldman analyst Lindsay Drucker Mann and her team of analysts have conducted a survey of 1,000 US consumers over the two days after Apple opened preorders for the Apple Watch.

Because of this, Goldman forecasts 13.5 million Apple Watch units will be sold inside the year 2015.

Apple Watch success isn’t sales, it’s stickiness

Apple Watch success isn’t sales, it’s stickiness

Apple isn't saying how many Apple Watches it sold in the first weekend of preorders, but arguably the bigger question is how many will still be wrapped around wrists a few months after. Unofficial estimates of sales have suggested as many as a million of the iOS wearables have been earmarked for eager owners, pushing shipping estimates into the summer at the earliest, and for many it was a case of buy first, try second since preorders opened before store demo displays did.

Apple Watch: by the (unofficial) numbers

Apple Watch: by the (unofficial) numbers

Apple isn’t talking about Apple Watch figures. They’ll probably hit us with official numbers at WWDC this year, so expect a massive screen boasting how many Apple Watches were ordered or sold at that point. Analytics firm Slice Intelligence has the numbers we want, though — unofficially, of course. They estimate that on day one of Apple Watch pre-orders, just shy of one million of us — 957,000 to be precise — ordered an Apple Watch. Analyzing eReceipt data, Slice says the average sale price was $503.83.

No surprise: Apple Watch bags 1M pre-orders on day one

No surprise: Apple Watch bags 1M pre-orders on day one

Despite some caveats and worries about supplies, it should come as a shock to no one except the hardest disbeliever that the Apple Watch did quite well on its very first day, at least as far as pre-orders are concerned. Sure, there might be a bit of incredulity, even perhaps shaking of heads, at the outcome, but this is Apple we're talking about. Although the company will most likely not release official numbers later on, research firm Slice Intelligence claims that almost 1 million pre-orders of the Apple Watch were made on Friday alone.
